The Enemy Within: 50 years in the battle against cancer

Health news

The Stratified Medicine Hub cosponsored a showing of The Enemy Within - a film depicting the last 50 years of the fight against cancer.

The film detailed some of the major breakthroughs in chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery and targeted therapies, and featured stories of patients’ experiences.

A panel of experts including senior academics and clinicians, as well as representatives from Roche and Cancer Research UK, answered questions from the floor about cancer screening, the multidisciplinary nature of the teams that discuss patients' cases and how survivorship is taken into consideration during treatment decisions.

The event, on 12 February, was jointly sponsored by Cancer Research UK, Yorkshire Cancer Research and the Stratified Medicine Hub.
